hello ganges, and welcome to THE GRATEFUL DEAD STORY!

somehow, you figured it out, indeed this is the only CAT from 77

and that is the site you wanna use for your searches,

and, as you probably know by now, the 77 breakout was the first china cat since 10/20/74.... the cat would sleep all through 78 and only reawaken on Feb 3, 1979.....

now you know the story of one of the dead's greatest breakout/hide and seek scenarios... can you blame them, they played this number 549 times.... how much fun was it after say..... the 281st time?.... but for the love of god, they kept on goin!

Hey He Live's - thank you so much, what a great site (and I just realized I had it bookmarked a longer while ago - and with all these bookmarks...), I really appreciate your reply! And I wasn't aware of this amazingly long period with just one CR. It's definitely one of my favourite tunes and this is the ONLY thing which I miss in 77, DPs 10 was my first DP years ago and so I knew they did play it that year, but unfortunately only once.

Thanks again and have a good day (well- probably a good night for you, I just started the day though).
